Saturday, January 30th, 2010


In looking back over my previous posts on this road trip, I realize that while I’ve shown a lot of photos and landmarks etc., I haven’t really talked much about my feelings about this advencha. I would like to change that. (more…)

Da Mystery Road Trip Revealed, Part Five

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010


Last time, I showed you the sight we would’ve been able to see from the hill above Lewiston, Idaho, if it hadn’t been dark. In gathering maps and info for this post, I discovered something else, that had I known about it, would’ve guaranteed that we’d gotten on the road much earlier so that we could’ve seen it.

What could that be, you ask? I’m gonna show you! (more…)

I had a couple of people say they really liked the maps I’ve been providing, so I thought I’d show where we’ve been so far. We’ve come so many miles that I can’t make it closer though. On this map, it doesn’t look very far!

K’den. On October 3, 2009, Nolemana and I left home for one of the most amazing and fabulous journeys of my life. It was a trip that yielded unbelievable joy, incredible reconnections with my ‘ohana, and sights that took my breath away. We spent seven days away from home and put many, many miles on my van. Ride shotgun with Nolemana and I and enjoy the ride! (more…)
